Tottenham Hotpsur and Crystal Palace ‘want’ Torino’s Saša Lukić in the Premier League, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

The 24-year-old’s qualities and performances have made him one of ‘few happy notes’ in the Serie A side’s ‘difficult season’, and we now have ‘London calling’ for the midfielder, who made his 100th appearance for the Italian side last month.

The Italian website use Pierre-Emile Højbjerg’s last summer signing as an example to explain Spurs have shown, whether it be by necessity and virtue, they are not only looking at big names in the market.

On similar lines, the Serbia international has become a ‘hot’ and a ‘perfect target’ for Tottenham, who are ready to take the next step to acquire his services.

José Mourinho’s side will have to battle it out with the Eagles, who tabled an offer for Lukić in Janaury.

The proposal couldn’t convince the Turin club and Crystal Palace are planning for a ‘new assault’ for the Torino player in the summer.

According to the report, there are no shortage of suitors in the Serie A, but no details are mentioned.

For now, the English clubs ‘seem ahead’ and if Spurs and Crystal Palace maintain their interest until the end of the season, the two London clubs could enter into a battle in the summer.
